Randy Kerns discusses SRM and the new research

Streamlines evaluation process for selection of Storage Resource Management along with popular Comparison Matrix 

 Boulder, CO (PRWEB) May 20, 2014.  At an enterprise level, selecting the right storage management software is not only critical but can be a key component of effectively managing resources and expenses. To help streamline and reduce risk while making a selection, Evaluator Group has expanded its SRM coverage to now include Product Briefs of major vendors.  The Product Briefs cover key characteristics, usage cases, product potential and Evaluator Group’s commentary on strengths and weaknesses.

“In this past year we have seen an increased interest in SRM tools as our IT clients deal with the growth of data,” said Randy Kerns, Senior Strategist at Evaluator Group. “Their request for assistance has included the question: what can we add to our current tool set or are there others that would better fit our needs? It is this need that has led us to increase our coverage.”

See the video with Randy Kerns discussing Storage Resource Management.

Evaluator Group provides a complete set of tools for assistance in product selection. Starting with the Evaluation Guides, IT end users can easily identify their requirements and priorities. Comparison Matrices provide side by side comparison of products which along with the Product Briefs narrow the selection options.  Along with this process, the Evaluator Group analysts assist clients in understanding the unique details and critical considerations, filling in the knowledge gaps or understanding on differences between software products.  This process streamlines selection and reduces their risk of purchasing products that are not right for the environment. More on how we assist clients can be seen in this video.

The SRM coverage includes Product Briefs and comparison of products from major vendors including: APTARE, CA, EMC, HP, Hitachi Data Systems, IBM, NetApp, SolarWinds and Symantec. Premium subscriptions for IT end users begin at $2750.

Additional coverage includes SAN, NAS, Solid State Storage, Software Defined /Virtualization Solutions, Object Storage, Archive Systems / Software and Disk to Disk VTL Deduplication.
